5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent keepsake/birthday gift 24 April 2007
I came across this book accidentally and it is absolutely beautiful - the image on-screen doesn't do justice to the book itself, which is large and ringbound but quite slim (so probably not bad for posting) and utterly appealing to kids.

The idea is that the child completes the drawings on each page, and although you may feel reluctant to 'spoil' the pictures (because they are so lovely) the finished book, coloured-in by little hands, becomes unique.

That's why it'd be a brilliant birthday present to use as a keepsake, or to give to brothers and sisters so they each have their own version. And besides all that, it's just the kind of book you want as soon as you see it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Your child will love this book 21 Nov 2007
By Armchair Interviews - Published on Amazon.com
Reviewed by Amanda Schafer

When your child is the artist of his own book, that book becomes a true treasure!

The Big Book for Little Hands is an interactive book with very simple sentences for the young reader. Each page has a basic background and instructions at the bottom of the page. After reading the instructions, your child uses creativity and imagination to create a scene like no other. With everything from color matching and patterns to critical thinking and reading skills, this book would be great for children regardless of age or gender.

When I first gave this book to my 6-year-old, he thought it might be fun but didn't show much interest. However, when he finally sat down to work through the book, he spent three hours coloring and creating-and only covered about 10 of the 58 scenes.

With a spiral binding, stiff cardstock pages, and a sturdy hardback cover, this book will stand the test of time-and of constant rereading!

Cocagne and Strevens-Marzo did a fantastic job when creating this book!

Armchair Interviews agrees.

This book holds my daughter's attention for hours at a time. Each page is a different creation. She has to think, use color, follow lines and shapes and create her own. She loves this book and I can see I will be putting this away in her keepsake box. A true treasure.
